The Game is good, but not very good in world and creature design.
I sound like an old man, but the old Morrowind game had way better creature and world design.
But the game has some surprises, the quests are fun, the world is good (but for me it is to realistic).
If i want play an fantasy game, i want see fantastic creatures, amazing citys and on, like in the game Dark Souls.
I will not say skyrim is a bad game, no, i really had a lot of hours fun, but some parts are not good.
Anyway the fightingsystem is better then in oblivion, you can block which cost stamina, your attacks cost stamina too.
But for that low price, it is a must buy!
